    The infamously liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just sided with
    the Trump Administration on a border wall case, as The Hill reports:

    A
    California-based federal appeals court on Monday sided with the Trump
    administration in lawsuits brought by states and environmental groups
    challenging the U.S. governmentís authority to expedite construction of
    barriers along the border with Mexico.

    The 9th Circuit Court of
    Appeals in a 2-1 ruling said the Immigration Reform and Immigrant
    Responsibility Act of 1996 gives the Department of Homeland Security
    broad authority to construct the border barriers and waive environmental
    laws in the process.

    The ruling affirms a district courtís
    decision that allowed the federal government to construct wall
    ďprototypesĒ and replace 14 miles of primary fencing near San Diego and
    replace similar fencing along a three-mile strip near Calexico, Calif.
    The appeals court decision also narrows the path for environmental groups to launch legal challenges to President Trumpís proposed border wall.

    You may recall that during the Obama years there were some groups promoting Vigilantism at the border. And the Courts were very quick to rule that Border Security is a Federal matter.

    As usual, the left wanted to ignore the SC and take a chance with their favorite ... The ninth circuit!

    The following is from Dec. 2018 and contains all the usual snide remarks from the source. 8)

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday said it would not hear a challenge to the Trump administration's proposed border wall brought by environmental groups who say construction could threaten endangered animals and violate environmental laws.

    The groups asked the court to reject a 1996 law signed by President Bill Clinton that provides the executive branch with sweeping powers to waive environmental laws if those laws impede construction of barriers and roads near the border.


    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday said it would decline to hear a challenge to the Trump administration's proposed border wall brought by environmental groups who say construction could threaten endangered animals and violate environmental laws.

    The groups asked the court to reject a 1996 law signed by President Bill Clinton that provides the executive branch with authority to waive environmental laws if those laws impede construction of barriers and roads near the border.

    The law was expanded by Congress in 2005 to give the Department of Homeland Security authority to waive "all legal requirements" that could stand in the way of border construction.

    But because they will not hear the case, a February ruling by a federal judge in San Diego will remain in place.

    That ruling in favor of the government was handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel. In 2016, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump said the Indiana-born judge could not be impartial in a case concerning Trump University because he was "Mexican." But, in February, Trump cheered Curiel's ruling as a legal victory.
